Admire No Celebrity: Louis C.K. Has Been Accused (By At Least 5 Women) Of Sexual Misconduct, Allegedly Forced Them To Watch Him Masturbate

Julia Wolov and Dana Min Goodman

It looks like all the rumors were true. If you’ve been following celebrity gossip, especially back when Gawker was still a thing, you probably remember hearing some disturbing things about Louis C.K.’s masturbation habits. In 2015, they published a story titled “Louis C.K. Will Call You Up to Talk About His Alleged Sexual Misconduct.”

In the story, there were allegations that the comedian exposed himself and masturbated in front of female comedians. Unfortunately, all their sources asked to remain anonymous at the time, so it was easy to dismiss the rumors. And that’s what the majority of Hollywood (including C.K.) did. They hoped the rumors would fade.

They did not, and now thanks to Harvey Weinstein kicking the ball of perversion down the hill, C.K.’s treatment of women in the industry is being brought up once again.

The New York Times published a report on Thursday with allegations from five women. The women claim C.K. acted inappropriately. including masturbating in front of them. One incident in 2002 involved the comedy duo of Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov. After performing at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival, C.K. invited them back to his hotel room.

While inside the hotel room, the 50-year-old comedian got completely naked and started to masturbate in front of them. They were shocked, and obviously started laughing because the situation was so bizarre. Their careers were never the same after the incident, though, ’cause they were bullied by C.K.’s manager when they started talking about the incident.

In 2005, a comedian/writer named Rebecca Corry said that while she was appearing with C.K. on a television pilot, he came up to her and asked if he could masturbate in front of her…

“‘He asked if we could go to my dressing room so he could masturbate in front of me.’ Stunned and angry, Ms. Corry said she declined, and pointed out that he had a daughter and a pregnant wife. ‘His face got red,’ she recalled, ‘and he told me he had issues.'”

And 10 years later in 2015, C.K. reached out to Corry and said he owed her a very late apology. He called her and said he was sorry for shoving her in a bathroom, Ms. Corry replied and told him he never did that to her, but added he did ask to masturbate in front of her. “I used to misread people back then,” he said.

What’s disturbing about this is that there are obviously more victims out there. He can’t even remember what or who he’s apologizing to. I mean, who the hell did he shove in the bathroom?

Louis C.K. was one of my favorite comedians. I saw him live last year, and he killed it on stage for nearly two hours. It was mesmerizing to watch one person, armed with just a microphone, command a stage like that. I looked up to him.

And now, along with the rest of the world, I’m learning you probably shouldn’t look up to any celebrity. The sad truth is you only know who they are on screen or on stage. You don’t know who they are behind the scenes. More celebs will be called out, and more idols will fall, but no one should be surprised anymore.
